Gyros Protein Technologies (part of Mesa Labs’ Biopharmaceutical Development Division), a pioneer in automated nanoliter-scale immunoassays and a leading provider of peptide synthesizers and reagents, has announced the next phase of its on-going collaboration with Cygnus Technologies, a Maravai LifeSciences company, and the introduction of a new HEK 293 HCP immunoassay solution. The Cygnus HEK 293 HCP Assay Reagent Set for Gyrolab is the first of a planned range of ready-to-use bioprocess impurity reagent sets optimized for use with the Gyrolab platform to be developed by Cygnus as part of the expanded collaboration.
The extension of the collaboration agreement follows the successful launch of the ready-to-use Gyrolab CHO HCP and E. coli HCP kits, developed through a licensing and supply agreement with Cygnus. The two companies are now expanding their relationship to develop a range of ready-to-use bioprocess impurity reagent sets optimized for use with the Gyrolab platform.
HEK 293 HCP Solution
The HEK 293 HCP Assay Reagent Set for Gyrolab from Cygnus Technologies, designed for use with the Gyrolab Bioaffy 1000HC Toolbox, detects residual host cell protein (HCP) from HEK 293 cells, a cell line commonly used in viral vector production for cell and gene therapies as well as in manufacturing of vaccines. Together these combine to form the HEK 293 HCP Solution for Gyrolab. The automated nanoliter-scale immunoassay solution supports fast development and streamlined process transfer, increasing productivity, providing faster time to results with less hands-on time, and reduced sample volume and reagent consumption. The HEK 293 HCP Solution for Gyrolab enables researchers to generate more data in less time for a broader range of analytical applications.
“The collaboration with Cygnus Technologies is an exciting step for Gyros Protein Technologies, underscoring our commitment to provide leading-edge automated analysis solutions that support bioprocessing and manufacturing,” said Mark Vossenaar, Vice President, General Manager, Biopharmaceutical Development Division at Mesa Labs. “There is a real need for analytical tools that support fast turn-around time and small sample volume, to accelerate viral vector bioprocess workflows and reduce time to market. HEK 293 HCP Assay Reagent Set for Gyrolab is the first of this new, high quality range, and we hope to announce further releases in the near future.”
